On talk sport, Jim White is saying Rooney is off to Everton. I think he would do well there especially as he will be really motivated for his boyhood club. I can see Everton being a real force this season. Would you guys be happy if we got Ross Barclay as part of the deal.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 11:54:46
Everton a real force hahaha.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 11:57:10
Not in anyway. Ross Barkley is bang average, always has been. Why would we want him? Where would he play?

3.) 03 Jul 2017 12:07:36
I don't want anything coming back the other way in this one. Barkley is only rated as he is English - his talent will be wasted. He should be up there with Alli in performance levels.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 12:20:51
Don't know how true but I was told Rooney was lined up for a coaching role at Everton next summer.

5.) 03 Jul 2017 12:32:07
I'd let rooney leave for free, we had the best Rooney years a while back so let him go and end his PL career with Everton. Oh and no I wouldn't want Barkley either.

6.) 03 Jul 2017 12:48:44
I thought Everton were making decent steps last season. Signings so far been ok. I wouldn't write them off.

7.) 03 Jul 2017 12:52:56
If Lukaku was part of the deal then how would you feel?

8.) 03 Jul 2017 13:37:10
Probably the new driver Jred.

9.) 03 Jul 2017 13:47:30
Everton have a good manager and made some astute signings. They will push for a top 4 spot this season i suspect but i'd imagine they will come up short.
As for rooney going back there. It would be nice for him to play out his career for the team and club he loves. He has had a great career at united ultimately 3 years too long probably but he will leave with the thanks of all supporters ringing in his ears i'd say. i'm sure when he conned back to OT he will get a great reception from the fans who will look back and ignore the last few years and remember the good times.

10.) 03 Jul 2017 13:50:39
conned? Who has he conned ken? ;)

11.) 03 Jul 2017 14:46:23
Would thank Rooney for his service and let him go for free to everton. Big wages off the books, but wouldn't want Barkley everton fans don't want him .

12.) 03 Jul 2017 14:58:15
I'd definitely let him go for free, it's the sensible business decision. Nobody is going to pay for him and I don't even know what value he has as a footballer, it's commercially where a buying lcub would see the benefits. Big wage bill off the books too.

He should and will go down as a legend.

The only reason I can't see him going to Everton (other than wages) is because I really don't see how he will get in their team.

13.) 03 Jul 2017 15:27:52
I would straight swap rooney and or fellaini for barkley. Putting aside how good you think barkley is it would make finacial sense. In this market you could sell barkley on for at least 30m next year.

I agree with most that barkley has been overrated in the past but he isn't average. He contributed to 13 league goals last season that's more than most of our squad members managed.

Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Got a good old fashioned friend of a friend rumour for you.
My brother in law, his girlfriend's dad is an Everton fan and he has said today the Lu Lu Lukaku is heading to United. Can't say I believe it but as I've said before I'd be happy if that came off.

15.) 03 Jul 2017 19:07:56
I can see lukaku coming tbh. I personally think he would be a brilliant signing for us. Good old fashioned striker who has consistently scored goals in teams that aren't challenging for the league. i'm not saying everton are bad side but if he can get the goals there surely with a bit of a step up he's going to score more.

16.) 04 Jul 2017 11:39:22
I like Barkley, not sure he is good enough for CL level. Had the potential, but not kicked on, so I'd give him a swerve.

In terms of Rooney - my prediction is he will start off well for 3-4 games, then by Xmas he will phased out of the team when they realise he is not mobile/ capable enough for the way they play. If we can get away with not paying any of his wages then it's a phenomenal way to get out of jail. I'd let him go for free of course, in fact I'd let him go if they offered to send us Gibson, Phil Neville and Tim Howard as part of the deal, lol.

Anybody think we might see a deal involving Smalling plus cash for Sanchez. Would suit both clubs?


{Ed002's Note - Everyone except Arsenal.}

Haha - love it Ed.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 19:34:00
Lol ed 🤣.

Solid enough match I kind of get the impression that the team are bedding in. Doing just enough to win. They will obviously have to raise their game against better teams later but no trophy is won this early in the season. With Chelsea probably desperate to beat us on Sunday that match now will show how strong we are. I fully expect Jose to play defensively the last thing we want to do is play wide open and invite Chelsea to get their confidence back.


1.) 01 Nov 2017 10:11:10
I think sitting back will enable them to build there confidence not the other way round.



26 Oct 2017 10:38:29
Just saw on sky sports how much worse this year Liverpool are than last and its Klopps anniversary there. Seems the "next year it's our year" Liverpool supporters are going to have wait a while yet for a league title.


1.) 26 Oct 2017 12:02:10
Amazing isn't it 😀.



01 Sep 2017 00:24:57
To all Eds especially Ed 02 many thanks for your making this site so enjoyable and especially at this time of the season when it's been a case of spending almost as much time looking at the posts as doing actual work!

When you have time and if you get info can you tell us who Utd were really seriously looking at to sign and why they didn't. It would be nice to know how close the rumours and speculation was to the reality. Looking forward to the January window.


{Ed002's Note - We do appreciate the comments man.}



30 Aug 2017 13:16:52
Would be interesting to see a list of predictions by the so called experts in the media about who was being sold to whom and then after deadline day see how many they actually got right and who was first and most accurate with their predictions.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 15:35:53
But that deposit sell papers. Regular new rumours are just click bait so I don't think they care if they are accurate or not.

Madrid and if he did I can foresee Ali and or Kane going with too.

Don't you think he will move to Spain after Spurs if he continues doing as well as he is now?


{Ed002's Note - Where?}

We need a proper winger and one like Sanchez able to play of both wings is a real asset. Additionally I would love to see Bale here too. Can you imagine Sanchez Bale Lukaku up front salivating at the thought but I know it's most unlikely. Unless Madrid sign someone I can't see Bale being released. Sanchez I think will fancy playing with City whose attack is very strong and style will suit him and he is probably more likely to win the titles he craves with them than us at the moment.

I like Blind a lot he always tries has an excellent football brain and can pass well but and it is a big but. he is not fast and most right wingers or attacking fullbacks beat him. He will be targeted and against the better teams he will cost us goals if played against left back.

Yes we know why he comes on to the Utd site. Can't help himself. Must be a closet Utd supporter who just feels guilty about revealing his true affections. This is a banter site so as long as it's all in good fun long may it continue.

Mighty Reds surely you need to change yr name "Once Mighty" more accurately reflects yr teams true nature. Or perhaps "mighty daydreamer". Let's look at the stats we have won more than you this season, scored more, let in less, play to bigger crowds both home and away. Every year it's going to be "our year" and in all honesty even you have to admit you won't win the league this year. You are likely to lose your best player in the Jan or summer transfer market. Keep on dreaming.

I may not be beast but I think a reality check is needed. We played a very average Newcastle team who almost went 2 0 up. Defensively they caved in after we equalised. Yes we played better today and Pogba back is a huge plus but we are still miles off where we need to be. Both fullbacks need replacing. left fullback is a no Brainer for anyone to see and as much as I do love Tony V for his work ethic the fact remains he is far too limited going forward espec being so one footed. Most decent teams know to show him inside and that stops him crossing. Even if he does make it outside on his right foot the majority of his crosses are not good enough. Wait til we play the top teams and then see how well we do.

Wingers with pace and creativity are outdated? REALLY? You mean you wouldn't take Hazard from Chelsea!? In my opinion he is exactly the type of player we need. Basically he is a winger but one who is talented enough and intelligent enough to come inside when possible. He creates plenty of goals creates space for others and scores a few himself. Just what we need.
